We have had the most amazing group conference with us for 3 days. We've had 138 representatives from 11 different countries in the Pacific Region. Almost every delegate holds a PHD and have been just the loveliest people. They arrived in buses on Wednesday and had a buffet lunch in our Bluewater Grill Restaurant before going into our function room to conference for the afternoon. The room was set up theatre style with 11 tables around the perimeter where they all set up a stand representing their country. It started with a kava ceremony as the introduction. That evening they had a beautiful buffet meal for dinner back in our restaurant.
Thursday saw a full day of hard work with the function room being set up cabaret style. Breakfast and lunch buffets were served in our Bluewater Grill Restaurant and morning and afternoon tea out on our function room balcony. You can see from the photos below what went on for the day! That evening the room was turned around into banquet rounds and the stage became a place of performance instead of key note speakers! ALL countries did a performance representing their country and a buffet dinner was served in there this time. They had a fantastic time.
Friday has seen them taken off in 3 groups with Pinnacle Team events. One group stayed on our driving range and did a survivor course while the others were taken into Nelson Bay and around the foreshore for an amazing race. They all reconvened back at the Club for an Aussie BBQ on the function room balcony before leaving to return home.
The weather, facilities, service, food and the kangaroos coming out right on cue couldn't have been more perfect for this group! We hope to see them all back here again soon.
